Mike Wallace

Software Engineer and Systems Operator
Mike Wallace is a software engineer and systems operator with a particular interest in distributed systems and the many and varied ways they can fail. He has been an engineer at IBM (formerly Cloudant) for the last two years as both a developer and operator of their globally distributed Database-as-a-Service platform (based on Apache CouchDB) and is a CouchDB committer.

Although far from a regular public speaker he has some experience speaking at conferences which he is keen to build on. Previous speaking experience includes:

European GeoSciences Union 2012 | High throughput landslide modelling using computational grids
UK e-Science All Hands Meeting 2011 | High scale, distributed landslide modelling
Berlin Buzzwords 2011 | Landslides, couches and particle physicists
